Intel QuickSync is an extremely fast media accelerating co-processor contained in the Intel Core line since Sandy Bridge.
It’s independent of the graphics subsystem with zero impact on general computing speed.
I’d love to see Steinberg write their own video codec based on this (and possibly other hardware accelerators) for Cubase.
Actually, I think for Nuendo it would be even more appropriate.
And it would eliminate the dependency on Quicktime… and: Anything freeing up more processor cycles for the music can’t be a bad thing, right?
Let me hear your thoughts,
